The Republic of Texas Museum,
Daughters of the Republic of Texas, in
Austin recently opened two new exhibit
areas featuring artifacts relating to the Republic
of Texas period.

Director Julie Klump attended the
formal opening of the rooms on April 23.

the portrayal and preservation of accurate
Texas history. Our thanks go to them."
